Eaten Pet Food

Happy Hump Day Breeders!

Have you had or seen an Amaretto animal that showed “Eaten Pet Food” in their hover text? Let’s talk about why that happens and how to prevent it!

First, on all breedable Amaretto animals, breeder food is the default. To change the food, it has to be done manually via the menu. There have been instances where breeders have started newly birthed horse, K-9, or bird/duck on pet food. Then, around 6-7 days old, changed over to breeder food and wondered why “Eaten Pet Food” is showing on the hover text.

The reason being, if you put a horse, K-9, or bird/duck on pet food, it will take a full 7 days on breeder food for the effects of the pet food to wear off and the “Eaten Pet Food” text to go away. Please note: This applies only to horses, K-9s, and Barnyard birds/ducks as Ponie Pals do not have pet food.

During this time, your horse, K-9, or Barnyard bird/duck will not gain fervor, heat, or vigor. So, essentially, you have delayed your breeding availability. Therefore, it is suggested, that any animal you intend to breed should not be given pet food.

Take a look at the difference between breedable food and pet food:

How they differ: Breeder Food on the right, Pet Food on the left.

If at any time, you experience a breedable that does not seem to be eating at all, please try the following tricks before filing a ticket.

  1. Re-rez (this usually fixes 99% of the issues)
  2. If the land is set to a group, are the breedable and food set to that group?
  3. If the land isn’t set to a group, are the breedable and food set to the same group as each other?
  4. Check to see if the breedable is set to the type of food out (under more stats)
  5. Re-set home position.
  6. Make sure the home position is set within range of the food (default range is 5 meters)

For horses or K-9s, sometimes giving them a Horsey Snack or K-9 Treat will help them start to eat so you may, also, want to try this. Remember your horses, K-9s, and birds/ducks only eat once every 43 minutes so you may not notice a change immediately, be patient. It takes 3 days for a horse or K-9 to reach 100% hunger, and 4 days for a bird/duck to reach 0% hardiness.

Additionally, if you ever have an issue with ANY breedable, the handy-dandy Wiki is available to answer your questions. You can find them at the following links.
